SaaS and Cloud Hosting

More and more, the need for labs to have their own application servers is being replaced by the advent of Cloud-hosted solutions.[1] This is especially true in the laboratory market, with budgets aimed at maximizing core services rather than extensive IT infrastructure.[2] If the LIS is offered as a hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) or Cloud-hosted product, then it, its hosting infrastructure and associated services need to meet certain standards and requirements.
